first_imgIf you are familiar with Geek.com, you have most likely come across our coverage of the next in the line of Alienware’s awkward looking, yet extremely powerful laptops. Today Alienware saw fit to confirm those rumors. Alienware’s entire notebook line was refreshed today.The impressive “gaming netbook”, the M11x R3, raised the bar in terms of exactly how much tech you can shove into the small form factor. Its older brother, the M17x, offers the raw power you expect from the Alienware brand with the same abusively sharp edges and otherworldly glow. Customizable right down to the backlight on the keyboard, these machines offer a unique computing experience, and it has been highly anticipated that Alienware would add to its line. We’ve seen leak after leak of the upcoming devices, even a full review on a Chinese computer website, but today Alienware makes their line refresh official.The new M11XThe popular, highly portable M11x got its R3 refresh today, giving the machine even more power and a serious increase to battery life among other things. The new M11x will be offered with your choice of Intel’s Core i3, i5, or i7 processors, and be overclockable out of the box, without risk to your warranty. Add in a new maximum of 16GB or Ram and “8 hours of battery life”, and you’ve got quite the upgrade to the original model. As if that was not enough, Alienware now supports 4G mobile broadband for either Sprint’s WiMAX network, or Verizon’s fledgling LTE network.Pricing for this model starts at $999 and is available on the Alienware website starting today, no mention of when we’ll see it in stores.The M14X Alienware got quite a bit of praise with their 17-inch sibling, but there was still a sizable market where the 17-inch machine was simply too big to carry, and the 11-inch machine was not enough to use consistently. So, the M14x was dropped from the mothership. Packing within it all the might of the m11x, but since they’ve got some more room to cram thing in, they did.  An HDMI out, DisplayPort, and standard VGA port are scattered across the machine for any kind of output, with three USB ports and a USB 3.0 port, the machine is still under 6.5 pounds.Pricing for these machines will start at $1499 and is also available today on Alienware.The M18XIf the M17x needed a big brother, which I doubt, the M18x is it and more. As Alienware’s first “desktop replacement” with a Sandy Bridge Core i7, this machine seems like it was built to stick as many gadgets in it as possible just to see is sentience happened. The M18x’s 18.4-inch screen lacks the streroscopic capabilities that its “little” brother has, but makes up for it by being able to deliver 3D over HDMI to any device that supports it. Also, it’s got an HDMI in port, allowing you to connect anything to the laptop and use it as a set of speakers and a monitor. Packing an all new Klipsch sound system and 5 hours of battery life, this $2100 monster truly fits the description of a desktop replacement.The Alienware team discussed future plans as well, touching briefly on plans to include Thunderbolt technology in the future, as well as looking into new form factors, such as tablets. Personally, I haven’t seen this kind of enthusiasm behind the Alienware brand since before the company was originally acquired by Dell almost 5 years ago. Now, they’ve got a powerful and iconic line of machines that offer the same combination of industrial styling and raw power that their original line of desktops offered.last_img read more
